romney in jerusalem when he was there while we were talking about the middle east. i think you will see a lot more of this and he thinks he has advantages in going after the president's record on on a lot of these issues. >> i recall specifically since you said he will be so careful as he words the speech today, i recall the series of gaffes on the overseas trip as well and to that point, wolf, this speech today, and we do have some of the excerpts, so i want to take a few and get your take on the differences between mitt romney's positions and president obama's positions on these very specific issues, and they are the hottest issues right now in foreign policy. start with iran. the excerpt according to the text we have been given, mitt romney is going to say, and i quote, the united states and our friends and allies will prevent iran from acquiring nuclear weapons capability. i will not hesitate to impose new sanctions on iran and will tighten the sanctions we currently have. if you could break down how that differs from the president's and specifically that word capability, acquir

campaign would like to put out there of mitt romney as commander in chief. just to talk a little about what you and wolf were talking about a few moments ago, you go into the excerpts and you can take away a few different things. i was listening to a call yesterday and you just mentioned the situation in syria and they were talking about this idea of providing arms to the rebels in syria as an idea that would appeal to the left as to people who look at this from a humanitarian standpoint, and so it was interesting to hear the romney campaign talk about that issue from this standpoint. the other thing they raised on this conference call and that you also see in the excerpts is this idea of a two-state solution between the israelis and the palestinians. we saw on the mother jones hidden camera video romney throw cold water on the idea of a two-state solution. if you look at the excerpts, he talks about a free and democratic and prosperous palestinian state that would stand side by side with an israeli state and that's very different at least in tone, especially during the foreign p

, carol, on a campaign conference call yesterday romney's foreign policy team talked about some presidents of past they might be shaping their foreign policy principles after. they talked about the presidencies of jfk, truman and even bill clinton. after that first debate when a lot of pundits on the right and the left were sensing that mitt romney might be moving to the middle on domestic policy issues, there might be some of that on foreign policy when we hear this speech later on this morning. >> jim acosta, we'll check back with you. >>> okay. let's take another peek at the obama campaign's preemptive strike. remember, it's called a prebuttal because it's challenging a speech romney will not give for a couple more hours. listen. >> when our u.s. diplomats were attacked in libya, "the new york times" said romney's knee-jerk response showed an extraordinary lack of presidential character. even republican experts said romney's remarks were the worst possible reaction to what happened. if this is how he handles the world now, just think what mitt romney might do as president. >>

to imagine what mitt romney must think about now and we talked to ann in our film, and we talked to many of the people around him, and they all said mitt, as a mormon, would believe he'll see his father on the other side of what they call the veil, and that he knows the father will look at him and say, you know, mitt, you did a good job. >> wow. so this is part of what he believes, again, speaking about his mormonism. here is a little more from your documentary. >> mitt romney has been accused of flip-flopping. but on mormonism he will never flip-flop. >> and yet in politics, he has often tried to keep that part of him behind the curtain. >> the backlash -- >> we know romney spent two years in france. somebody wrote it up the sissyfian task of not drinking, in all places of bordeaux. very close brush with death as well. how did those years, how did that really shape him into who he is today? >> i think he was not a serious person when he went. he had been at stanford, supported his father's pro war, pro vietnam war stance by protesting the protesters. but that was about as close as

me ask you about that. romney spoke as we mentioned, focused on the middle east, talked egypt. the u.s. pulled the plug on our ally, hosni mubarak, he's gone. egypt's post mubarak president is a member of the militant muslim brotherhood. here is what mitt romney said about egypt today. >> egypt, i'll use our influence including clear conditions on our aid to urge the new government to represent all egyptians, to build democratic institutions, and to maintain its peace treaty with israel. and we must persuade our friends and allies to play similar stipulations on their aid. >> so he mentions the aid, continued aid we give egypt a lot of money, the second highest recipient of u.s. foreign aid. but he mentioned conditions, talking to egyptians. is that realistic? >> you can pose conditions. the problem is getting people to fulfill the conditions and then pulling the trigger if they don't fill the conditions. if it all fell apart, and i spoke to people in the u.s. government in egypt, who did worry that egypt could drift in the direction of pakistan, their view is the way to make that

talked about and that was romney's stance on arming the syrian rebels. how does the united states go about doing that, because we know the obama administration even learning in the "new york times", they're discouraging u.s. allies, arab allies to actually get involved. >> yeah. you know, if you would have lisped that speech, you would assume atmospherically that romney had very strong disagreements with the obama administration, but his problem is that obama has run a foreign policy almost like a moderate republican. it's been internationalist, and not too liberal in temz of the human rights oriented. the syrian issue is the one place romney can find to make a distinction. as you point out, it's a very difficult policy to enact. the syrian insurgency is really an uprising of 100 armed militias all over syria that are not particularly well connected to one another. >> you wouldn't understand the goals of the people you are arming, and there is a danger that some of this would blow back in just a way in the afghan skas where the people we armed turn into terrorists. >> it sounded me l

. >> let's talk a little bit, wolf, about what the voters are looking for, because you have a romney campaign criticizing the obama administration strategy or this doctrine that the obama administration called leading from behind. specifically libya when the white house in a calculated let france and britain take lead in establishing this no-fly zone, and the u.s. played assist. romney is calling that leading from behind as following. very different than what we saw from president bush with his own preemptive first strike doctrine forging the war in iraq and using it as justification for his war on terror. what do you think american voters are more comfortable with? do you think that it is the bush preemptive approach that resonates with voters, or is it really more about what president obama is trying to do? >> there's clearly no great desire on the part of the american public to get involved in wars. once again, as was the case with iraq, for example. it's completely militarily, even though, as you and i know, the situation in iraq is deteriorating, and romney makes some valid points about

. what did he say about the debate? >> reporter: first of all the president started off by talking about foreign policy and winding down or ending the war in iraq, and winding down the war in afghanistan and the auto bailout, and he turned his focus to romney of course and one thing that has been coming up on the road since the debate, big bird. >> when asked what to do to cut spending, he said he would go after television. don't worry somebody is finally cracking down on big bird. cracking down on him. elmo's made a run for the border. governor romney plans to let wall street run wild again, but he is bringing the hammer down on sesame street. >> reporter: the president also poked fun at his own lack luster debate performance, and he was talking about all the list of performers how they perform flawlessly night after night and he says that's not something he can say about himself. >> the president has more events planned in california, but all are fundraisers, right? >> reporter: the majority -- he does have one unveiling a national monument in northern california and he will do t
